Ramaphosa calls on Chamisa to accept defeat

August 27 2018 – SA President Cyril Ramaphosa has called on Zimbabwe’s opposition Movement for Democratic Change (MDC) -Alliance to concede defeat and move on.

He was among some African leaders and guests who attended the inauguration in support of President Emmerson Mnangagwa at a stadium in Zimbabwe’s capital, Harare.

Ramaphosa says in elections, there are winners and losers.

“We’ve been saying that political parties that ran for an election and did not succeed, their leaders must accept this outcome and must move on. It’s now time to rebuild Zimbabwe to make it strong and there will be another chance in another election. That is what always happens in elections.”

This comes amid reports that Chamisa, like his predecessor the late Morgan Tsvangirai is planning to take his case to the African Union. – SABC/Patience Rusere
